This year's Tater Tot Takedown is a rumble between FPT staffer Mel and regular contributor B2. As you can read a few posts down, this year's event was very competitive with both sides talking some serious trash. Each party was allowed to introduce one additional 'thing' edible or not to the tater tot plate. Well it is time to deliver and here we go.
PLEASE take a moment and vote for your pick of the two via the poll found on the right side of your browser. No holds barred match.
First up is the challenger B2: "I started with premium Ore-Ida Tater Tots. Cooked them at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Tots where then topped with a shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend and baked for another 5 minutes. For those who did not know. Ore-Ida is short for Oregon-Idaho"
Reigning champ Mel offered up the dish below with this commentary: "These Ore-Ida brand Tater Tots were oven-baked to perfection on a slab of aluminum foil. Upon pulling them out of the oven at the exact perfectly glowing crispy time, I had to float one off so I used the foil to make a solid almost sealed oven-ball which kept them nice and hot when I returned app. 6 minutes later".
